To arrange a showing email CRAIG@Chatel.US HISTORY OF THE HOME: This large corner residence, a mixture of the Romanesque and Queen Anne styles, was constructed in 1890-91 for George A. Shehan, the owner of a prosperous lumber company once located on the present site of the Federal Triangle. W. Bruce Gray, a transplanted New York architect who often worked in partnership with Washington architect Harvey Page, was responsible for the design. Other notable buildings designed by the Gray & Page firm include the old Army and Navy Club and the Metropolitan Club. The builder was John McGregor, a Sottish-born master builder who worked with Washington's most prominent architects between1885 and 1910. The house cost approximately $25,000 to build, including a detached, two-story carriage house at the rear of the property. A conservatory connecting the two structures was built in 1923. A photograph of the residence appearing in Washington: Houses of the Capital highlights the most prominent feature of the structure: the five-story tower with its ornate, wrought iron balcony. The Shehans lived in the house until George's death in 1903. Theodore D. Wilson, the chief constructor of the US Navy Department and the owner of the adjoining home, purchased 1633 16th Street and leased it to the Bolivian government in 1919 for use as the Bolivian Legation, the residence of the Bolivian foreign minister. Vintage photos of the house indicate it also once served as the Embassy of Ecuador. In 1923, prominent Washington businessman Robert L. Pyle purchased the property and converted it into a residential hotel known as the Bolivian Club. In 1951, the Pyle family purchased the adjoining house and connected it to the Bolivian Club by creating openings in the party wall on every floor. In its heyday, the Bolivian Club offered guests a choice of 42 bedrooms and 22 bathrooms, meals included. In 1977, the Bolivian Club was converted into an office building and remained so until the current owner bought the combined structure in 1992. The owner subdivided the structures into their original configuration as two separate residences in 1993 and converted the corner house into a residence. Over the past several years, the house has been extensively and sensitively restored.
